the al-qaeda in the arabian pen lanes and what its future may be in the united states and the letter reads in part it appears the decision not to thoroughly interrogate abdulmutallab was made by you and other senior officials in the department justice. moreover those with knowledge of this decision have said they are concerned with certain aspects of it without prior approval from your department, so the top senate republican is saying he wants some transparency in this decision, he wants to know who made the decision, the rationale for that decision, and i find it interesting they wants to know why the fbi director apparently is being prevented from discussing it fully with members of congress. jane catherine, i understand you spoke to a former fbi agent who's raising the question what about the quality of this information that abdulmutallab provided? >> reporter: this is the story i've been trying to get at for some time and i think today i've finally been able to. based on what i've heard from my contacts we know that abdulmutallab was severely burned, and i was told that after he

hatched outside the united states, and then accomplished against the united states. it's the worst attack in the history of this country. so what are we doing? this is a public relations gimmick to try him in a civilian court. >> because the art i get some have made is if he's found guilty, the self-proclaimed mastermind of 9/11, if a civilian court finds him guilty, a criminal court before the whole world watching, he's sentenced to death, and executed, that would be for the world, for america's reputation as a recruiting tool against clade, much better than if a military court were to do the same thing. i see you're smiling, but the argument -- you wouldn't have all the benefits that he would have in a civilian court. >> that's not going to make a darned bit of difference to the terrorists who want to kill us or murder us. it is going to cut off questioning and intelligence as it did on christmas day. finally, all of that will mean nothing, because the president of the united states and the attorney general have very unprecedented way announced he's going to be found guilty. so his conv

business. it's in excusable when national security is involved. that the president of the united states should tell the cia to issue guidance of the timely distribution of intelligence reports is unsettling to put it mindly. it's mind-boggling the president felt the need to instruct the director of national intelligence to take further steps to raise the standard of trade craft analysis especially analysis designed to uncover terrorists plots either this is boilerplate or the country is in a world of trouble. that's "washington post" this morning. here's the "wall street journal". failure to connect the dots. the antiterror education of president obama continued yesterday with the white house report blameing the white house report counter terrorism community as a whole from a failure to connect the dots of intelligence that would have prevented uma farouk abdulmutallab from boarding a plane on christmas day. mr. obama blamed no one in particular for the failure and not even george bush. in one sense this is a refreshing sense the president said the bucharest stops with him. what's your
